I love the colors in this scene. Beautiful sky too. Looks like a great place to go and watch the clouds.

I like the concept, and the image quality is quite nice, but it's too vivid for my tastes....5

Foreground and background both interesting, but they almost compete with each other

I think this would have done great in a landscape type challenge. Good foreground interest , details aplenty in the midground, dramatic sky , but it does not convey harmony or serenity or simplicity. The colors are just too punchy & warm. 6

I'm not a big fan of the dark corners, but it's a nice shot if a little over saturated.

Interesting composition. Good DOF. The sky looks really strange.

Looks a bit oversaturated.

Very interesting use of HDR(?) Was the vignetting intentional? The colors are vibrant, almost other worldly.

This is one of the shots that really caught my eye when I browsed the thumbnails, which, I guess, is what a photo should do.

Sure would love to see this in b&w and without the vignette. Stunning photo.

The colors are a bit intense, but nice job with the clouds. Mine always get blown out :(

Very pretty scene, maybe a bit overprocessed... especially with both a vignette and a border. I would have chosen just one if any.

Nice photo, great colours, good composition. I find the vignette overpowering.

Mmh...There something "zen" and balanced in the composition indeed...but the vivid, almost oversaturated colors, are working a bit against that mood.

The processing really hurt this image. I think that it was simply pushed to much. The colors are oversaturated, its over sharpened and the vignette is distracting.

The scene itself is good and the composition works but the processing makes it look unnatural.
